    Mike — oversight that you left Gyorko off all those lists of guys set to arrive?

      To a point, yes, but I’m not sold on him. Bad body and he has not posted strong numbers in more neutral environments.

        One aspect about the neutral ballpark with Gyorko is the timing. In 2011, he got the call late in the season to San Antonio, started off slow over the first couple of weeks then performed much better only to see the season end. In 2012 it was much of the same at San Antonio, except this time the season didn’t end, he just got promoted.

        The numbers I was referring to at San Antonio:

        2011
        July (116 PA) – .257/.336/.356 (2 hr)
        Aug/Sep (149) – .311/.376/.481 (5 hr)

        2012
        (1st 65 PA) -.204/.338/.278 (1 hr)
        (Next 84 PA) .302/.357/.539 (5 hr)

        I wouldn’t put too much weight in the neutral environments considering the above points.
